BIKE RALLY: VÉLORUTION'AIR
Saturday 2nd May, Passy
Friendly bike rally to ask for cycling facilities in the Mont Blanc region and to reinvigorate everyone's desire to travel by bicycle. Action organised in partnership with AMAPlace sur la Terre (community farming not-for-profit organisation), based in Domancy. This organisation puts in practice the short supply chain concept and provides customers for 2 organic farms in the Mont-Blanc area.
Meet at 10am, Place du Marché in Chedde (near the station).
Rally departure 10:30am towards Passy Lake.
On arrival: stands, entertainment and pic-nic.
Come with a fun bike, a cargo bike, or without a bike. Come on foot, on long-board, roller blade and in good humour. Without engines, we can all breathe happily....we can breathe deeply, without worry.
All participants at the event will receive an "I am Velorution Air" sticker.

What has happened since these events?
- Cycle path between Les Houches and Servoz: There is real will at the Les Houches town hall to see this track become a reality. In conjunction with the community of communes of the Chamonix Valley, Inspire and the SM3A and hopefully some (yet confirmed) funds from ATMB, this project is taking shape. Phase 1 of the works (Les Chavants to the SNCF station at Vaudagne) will begin in 2015. More information
- Chamonix: Following the council meeting on 27th February 2015, works for the first tranche of cycle paths, between the station at Pelerins and Chemin Napoleon in Les Bossons, were authorised and approval was given for 500 000 Euros to be allocated from the budget. Works to begin in 2015.
